Thanks Daniel and Tully for solving my problem with Fuerte. Those tests
seem to run, now.

I was misled by the documentation.  The Fuerte pre-release page[1] points
to the regression_tests page[2], which points to the github repo for the
non-Catkin rosdistro file. I will help fix the documentation, once I figure
out what it should say. It is confusing that both repos contain .rosdistro
files for both Fuerte and Groovy.

What about Groovy? Should dry stacks be using the code.ros.org release repo
for that, too? Although my new stack is now listed on the Groovy
pre-release page[4], none of those tests run successfully. But, I have not
yet succeeded with any dry, Groovy pre-release test, even for very simple
stacks with few dependencies. I keep trying periodically.

 * Is the new github rosdistro repo ever used for dry stacks? Or, only in

 * Should the Fuerte pre-release page[1] point somewhere else for its "Can't
find your repository in the list? <http://www.ros.org/wiki/regression_tests>"

 * Is there a Fuerte to Groovy dry stack migration guide that I have
